Happy Birthday PD

HELLOOOOOOO!!!  Today I am sharing an A2 sized FULL shaker card with you.  This card is covered from corner to corner with a full plastic cover and shaker contents that can travel inside the whole card!!

I started by picking out a few pieces of paper from PD's "Birthday Fun" paper pack.  The presents are from Sweet Birthday and Big Birthday Surprise  clear polymer stamp sets.  I then layered my pieces with some pretty holographic paper which looks amazing in real life!!

The sentiment is also from Big Birthday Surprise and I just love the boldness and the font of this sentiment.

I love how these presents turned out so bold and bright and FUN!!  Just how a birthday should be!  I added some silver Stickles to the dots on the present and it really seem to tie in with that holographic layer.

It's so hard to take a photo of a shaker card so I have included this small video just to show you the movement of it.  The one thing I learned that I will probably always do now is pop up elements using 3D foam tape.  It really helps lift that overall shaker layer so the sequins get all over inside.

What colours do you like best for your birthday cards?  Does it depend on your recipient?  Most times that's the case for me.  A birthday is all about being unique so I always create the card around the uniqueness of that particular person.  It's always a winning combo!  😀

Thanks for stopping by!
